Buying in Europe

Post by Hartford688 »

Anyone bought this from the Euro store yet?

It shows up as EUR65 = $80, so $10 more than the US store.

This is about the VAT amount...has anyone bought this in the store and can tell me if it is EUR65 including VAT or more VAT gets added?

If it does, I'll go buy on the US store...with DD, there seems no point to pay more in the Europe store. I'll pay VAT either way, but the base cost is $10 less.

If you look at the screens as you purchase the items and move into entering billing information, you should see info on VAT and a link to get more info. The store does indeed automatically add VAT for you and can provide a detailed VAT receipt. Thank you for your interest in WitP.

Any digital products sold into the European Union include a VAT (Tax) charge of 17.5%.
NOTE: If your product is being delivered outside of the EU, you will not be charged VAT once you have entered your payment information.

so I guess you have to add the VAT. If it's true it's better to buy at the USA store it's 82.5$ (68 €) instead of 75 €.

I wonder if it's possible to cheat by placing the oder from an outside UE country. [:D]

geee, I'm from Czech Republic (EU member since May 2004) ... so 17,5% VAT is applied [:(]

I order game through US store's cheaper, $82.24 ...
regarding purchasing capacity here in CZ it is a lot of money, luckily for me I can afford it [8D] ....

another math ... I should play this game for 3 years at least (1095 days) => $0.075 per day [:D] => 2 Czech Crowns is a price of a one bun .... [:)]
